Is he Tango or Teddy? Lost dog at Halsall brings in a flurry of concern


Following my blog article, which also appeared on OTS News (see below), we have had many contacts with concerned dog owners. A few of these correspondents may have vital details regarding the lost dog in question. Please note that the photo of the dog above is NOT the missing one but for illustration purposes only.

Lost Dog at Halsall, Lancashire, on canal tow path

Please consider the following data (sent in by a lady called ‘Shan’), which we have just received this morning. Could this be the missing dog?

“Teddy was stolen in March from Ramsbottom Lancs and was sold on. Teddy is believed to have been sold on in the Liverpool area but could now be anywhere in the country. He will be two years old in November 2016 he is micro-chipped and is reported as stolen. Teddy has a fat tail at the base and it is also a little bent, as he suffered a broken tail. Teddy is a big lovable boy but does not let you touch his tail as he doesn’t like it. Teddy also has a little white on his chest but very little. Teddy is very much loved and missed and also will be missing his family. You may have bought him in good faith and not known that he is stolen, so if you have bought a dog like Teddy since March please take him to the vets for scanning. We are sure that you love him but he has a family that loves him and that he adores back. You will be reimbursed of any monies you paid for Teddy. Teddy has a Facebook page called ‘Help me find my Teddy boy stolen’.

Please join and help to bring him home where he belongs. ”

We believe the number given on the photo belongs to Teddy’s owner, Paula.

We also believe that the lost dog could be called ‘Tango’ and belong to persons in the Plex Moss Lane, Halsall, area. This is however NOT confirmed yet.
